OFURO Bathtub

From the tradition of the Japanese ritual to the bathtub with a contemporary design
antoniolupi OFURO
There are words that, when heard pronounced, are immediately evocative of an atmosphere, of a suggestion, of a distant and fascinating echo. One of these is, without a doubt, ritual. If we limit ourselves to its literal meaning, a ritual is nothing more than a set of actions repeated over time, always identical and configured to achieve a purpose, more often spiritual or emotional than material. However, if we take the meaning of ritual to a higher level, free from the need for a link with matter and time, the prefiguration of something sacred is defined, clearly in our mind and heart, from which to draw well-being, purification, and truth.
From the tradition of the Japanese ritual to the bathtub with a contemporary design
Never has Japan had a land been more deeply permeated by traditions and rituals; welcoming contamination as a precious teaching, we can learn how to change some simple daily habits into something deeper and more meaningful, so strong that it even has the power to transform the space and configuration of one of the rooms of the house into where we spend the most time: the bathroom. If it is to the shower that the pure daily necessity of personal hygiene can be delegated, it is to the bathtub that, on the other hand, it is possible to assign meanings that go beyond the purely material and functional sphere
A bathtub, in the Japanese ritual of Ofuro, is the large and welcoming basin, scented with hinoki wood, which gives the person purification, well-being and liberation from the accumulated stress of the day. The gesture of immersion in hot water – the Japanese say that the ideal temperature is around 43 degrees – the hectic time of ordinary work and social activities settles on a slower rhythm, measured on breathing and the heartbeat of our heart. From this distant ritual, which is still repeated today, ryokans and public baths of the land of the Rising Sun, antoniolupi draws, with Carlo Colombo, the project of the OFURO bathtub, modulated around a large and generous geometry.

Ofuro is made of Flumood
An elegant form, a large sculpture, a bathtub that seems to have been made from a single block, worked, cut by the skillful hand of man or eroded by the natural force of water. The coexistence of straight lines and sharp edges with soft shapes and curved surfaces values the composition allowing to also contemplate the corner placement of it. The lowered edge in the front invites you to enter, to immerse yourself completely both in the freestanding version and when it is recessed into the floor and takes on the image of a bucket of natural water. Ofuro is made of Flumood and has a variable thickness edge, wider in some parts with the consequent possibility of supporting objects and body care products, thinner in others to lighten the imposing volume. The bathtub can be equipped with LED light integrated at the base resulting in a feeling of elegance, lightness and suspension.
